Here We Go Again


Another victim claimed violence at the hand of someone from the minority community only to have it turn out to be a LIE! There’s a long line of  people who claimed some black person did them great bodily harm and I  agree with Dr. Jeff Gardere’s assessment that fixing the blame on fictitious black people is a part of the Black Bogeyman phenomenon that says whites and society at large must fear angry black people who are intent on doing everyone they come into contact with great bodily harm.  I’m not so sympathetic to insist the behavior of falsely ascribing victim status on one’s self is a personal mental disease; the larger society cannot escape the role it plays in allowing someone to think such behavior is plausible.  Bethany Storro, the victim turned perpetrator, belongs in a jail that offers mental health services.

From the ‘he’s an idiot department’


idiotOur parents always told us never speak ill of the dead, but in the case of the guy in this post, I want to wake him up from the dead and slap him silly.  He’s the poster child for stupid behavior.  Why anyone would point a gun to their own head and claim they’re doing that to show people the importance of gun safety is S-T-U-P-I-D.  It’s not enough that firearms owners are given the evil eye by non-owners, and are always threatened or feel threatened with confiscation of their weapons by an over reaching government, but to give opponents of private ownership of weapons the ammunition, pardon the pun, to berate, deride, ridicule, encroach and infringe on that right, is……….well suicide as Mr. Benally found out.  For all the do gooders out there, here’s a tip for you.  Never point a weapon at your head, ever!  And if you’re not smart enough to follow that rule, then don’t do it in front of people and claim to give them a safety demonstration of how to use a firearm!  Jeez.
